Women’s Hairstyles of the 1960s

Women’s hairstyles of the 1960s are by far my favorite. The decade of the 1960s was an exciting time for fashion, as many of us know. But have you ever thought about the cool hairdos that were in style during that time? When I get my hair cut these days, my stylist gives me the classic Vidal Sassoon asymmetric bob, which has never gone out of style and is as flattering as ever. Here are some of my favorite style icons and the classic women’s hairstyles of the 1960s that I associate with them.

The featured photo is of actress Nancy Kwan (“Flower Drum Song,” 1961; “The World of Suzie Wong,” 1960) , modeling the Vidal Sassoon asymmetric bob, my favorite women’s hairdo of the 1960s. Vidal Sassoon became a household name in hair care products, but how many of us realize that he also designed hair for so many stars of the 1960s?
